[Desktop] Option to turn off media overlay on Desktop App in Windows

Newest version of Spotify... no option to disable the super annoying popup every time I hit the volume key on my keyboard.

I have seen several places on here where there was apparently an option in a previous version, but that option appears to no longer be there.

I was on the chat with an agent for over an hour trying to figure out how to turn it off, and it just won't go away.

 

I don't know who first decided this was a good idea, but it's invaded my browsers as well - at least there is a way to turn it off there!

 

Guess I'll be sticking with the browser version of spotify which does NOT do this super annoying thing.

I'm also very annoyed about this. The overlay just gets right in my way whenever I adjust volume, and I have to wait for it to fade. Why would they force the overlay on users that find it annoying/distracting/flow-breaking, especially when the app used to have the feature to disable it? Thanks for pointing out the browser version option.
